Published 202 Comments

Football News

The WWE haven't been enjoying a good time of things as of late.

With the companies biggest stars being part-timers like Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker, combined with John Cena only holding the United States Championship and the lack of a real face protagonist that the fans love, the WWE is really struggling.

The rating figures for Monday Night Raw have been catastrophic in the last few weeks, and it seems Vince McMahon has had enough, and is doing something about it by bringing Brock Lesnar in.

Shock Lesnar Appearance

According to a report from PW Insider, via Cageside Seats, in a bid to boost RAW viewing figures, McMahon has added Lesnar to next weeks show after not being scheduled for the event.

Rumors had already been going round that the WWE had forked over more money to get The Beast to work October, in order to finish his feud with Undertaker instead of taking his usual SummerSlam-to-Royal Rumble break.

This has led to Lesnar going on what the WWE are calling 'The Go To Hell Tour', with Lesnar appearing on a couple of Raw's, the Madison Square Garden show where he faces Big Show, before being the guest on the Stone Cold Podcast and capping it all off with his Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker.

Getting Desperate?

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter added that the September 21st RAW rating, which was a record low, directly caused Vince to put "enormous pressure" on the WWE creative team.

With this week's RAW numbers lower than the September 21st show, you can bet Vince wasn't happy, which is leading to major changes, starting with the smaller step of bringing in Lesnar again.
